Batley Multi Academy Trust is governed by the Board of Trustees, which is accountable to the Department for Education. Trustees have strategic oversight and ultimate responsibility for all management decisions within the Multi Academy Trust academies, setting visions and policies for the Trust, governance and contractual relationships with third parties. They are responsible for the management and administration of the Multi Academy Trust. The board has three core functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The Board of Trustees can comprise Member appointed Trustees and Co-opted Trustees.
Trustees establish the Local Governing Boards in order to assist with the discharge of their governance functions.
